Red Marmelade

The purpose of each marmalade is to cover a specific facial need in depth, in the best possible way. Cleansing is a very important procedure for the mature complexion. With age process the skin looses part of it's elasticity and becomes more sensitive, so it's very important that the cleansing prosess will take place with less aggressive ingredients. Furthermore, a typical situation on the mature face is the appearance of blotches because of hyperpigmentation wrought from ageing and/or stress. Red marmelade combines kaolin clay, a material very well known and used for cleansing, with red clay, not so famous about its cleansing abilities, but for its revitalizing properties for the tired and sensitive skin. Daisy exctract from organic cultivation is added because it is a safe whitening ingredient that can improve the apearance of darker areas. My favorite st John's Wort is added to avoid the unpleasand itching of an aggressive cleansing product, but at the same time it is an oil with wonderfull healing and anti-inflammatory properties. Lemon perfume oil in combination with "vento orientale" complete the cleansing experience!
Key ingredients: Water, kaolin, red clay, St John's Wort, daisy exctract, sodium lactate, cucumber extract

Instructions: The safest way to apply a clay facial mask is to combine the clay with the rest of the ingredients just before the use. You win 1) Less preservation 2) The exact amount of clay dependind on your needs and 3) More clay = better cleansing + more product! It's a fact that products that incorporate clay from the begining are necessarily using less amound of it. In a wide necked glass jar place 2 tiny spoons of the corresponding clay and add a few drops of water, or your favorite tonic lotion. A little spoon will help you transfer the clay, so that the rest of the clay remains safely dry in an amber jar. Then, add about 5 ml of “red marmalade” active gel and stire. This is also the amound that you are going to need for a single use. Apply the mask in clean and dry face without forgetting the neck, but avoiding the area around the eyes. Let it dry 10-15 minutes. You will have a stretching sensation and the mask becomes "solid". Remove the mask with lukewarm water. Finally, moisturize the face with a Moisturizing Mask, or with your Facial Cream. If you have fixed extra mixture then great! Keep it safe and sealed in the wide necked jar and in the fridge and use it within a week. The mask is applied ones per week.

Quantity: The set is completed with 40ml of marmalade active gel and 8.5g of red clay mixture (at least for 8 applications), a wide necked jar for mixing and a tiny little spoon for transfering the clay.
